Black Bay is a famous diving watch series of Tudor, as a sub brand of Rolex, Tudor has its own features, especially Heritage Black Bay, it has become one of the most popular diver’s watches in recent years. The replica here I will introduce is made by Z factory, we call it ZF. Actually genuine watch was just unveiled in 2018 Basel, now it is so fast for the factory to produce its replica watch out, because the watch is simple to be replicated. The Tudor watch is a two tone style, with a yellow gold dial, it looks a bit different from common Tudor Black Bay watch. Now further details will be discussed in the following article.
Case is made of solid 316L stainless steel and has 18K yellow gold plated, the gold coating is almost 5 mils, which is very thick and never fade after long wearing. 41mm case is cut by CNC to form one whole piece, then brushed according to genuine watch, every piece of case from ZF must go through more than a dozen processes. Black bezel features yellow gold markings in deep engraving. Like genuine watch, you can rotate the bezel anti-clockwise. The crown on the replica has a sealed screw-down structure, so the waterproofness is better than those cheap replicas.
Sunbrust dial is in yellow gold, which echoes with golden case and bracelet. ZF used overlay printing technology on the dial, especially on the Tudor shield logo, so the logo looks a bit raised from the dial, very refined. All hour markers and hands are applied original lume material, they will emit super green light in dark condition.
The bracelet is the part that mostly worthy talking because it is special rivet bracelet. Before, I only saw rivet bracelet used on some vintage Rolex watches. The links on both sides of the bracelet are connected by rivets. Central links are plated with thick yellow gold like the case. Now if you buy the replica, ZF will offer one free dark green nylon strap.
